They mainly use them on the other type superchargers. I had a brain fart and cant think of the name.

Anyways, I would think that the only way you would be able to put one on is if your car is fuel injected. Otherwise the carbs sit right on top of the blower and there is no place to put the lines for the intercooler to the intake which is right under the blower.

BDS part number 8956 for 671/871. It's 4" tall and has (2) 1/2" inlets and (2) 1/2" outlets.
Of course you will need a longer stud kit, the radiator/water pump/lines and a longer belt.

Ran one on my dyno 15 years ago,with tap water running through the cooler it gained 85 H.P.and cooled the charge from 330 deg down to 90 deg. Bill

they make a nitrous plate to go between hat and blower to lower temp...best solution is to run alcohol injection with hat nozzles , no more heat...

I have been toying with the idea of converting to alcohol at the same time, but considering I run on the street a good amount and the fact that it burns twice as fast, hell I only get 5 mpg right now. Not to mention I am not real sure how easy it is to get around Harker Heights, TX aslo have no idea how much it costs a gal. 93 octane or even race gas I know where I can get that. I do agree though alcohol means no more heat. Still a little up in the air about it. Nitrous I am a little scared of, besides from what I have read so far it would be on a WOT switch, so the only time I get the cooling effect is at WOT, that doesn't really happen all that offten. So I really don't think that would really be a good idea for me. I think alcohol would be a better option over all. But need a lot more info on it. Good side is that I have time to do research and any advice you guys could give me would be greatly appreciated. Thanks again for all your help

Understand, but I didn't see the point of having a Blower if I was going to underdrive it. Right now I really don't think that the heat is a huge factor, but since the truck in continuing to fall more to the side of MUD Drag truck, I am just doing my research. I am seriously thinking about converting to Alcohol as a couple of guys have suggested and the more research I do the better I like it. Only problem I have right now is trying to find a supplier in the Central Texas area and how much the fuel is going to cost. Thanks for the advice and keep it coming please.
